    My preference always is to buy used, but
    I looked for 6 months and never found a used mill in the size/price range I wanted. I didn't want to wait any longer so after lots of research I chose the...

    I always try to be, Jerry. But to be honest, these are medium sized black walnut, at best, around 22" dia. They often get over 36" here in the NE and then I have to pass. And a guy a couple of...

    If your gun is a gravity feed HVLP gun you need at least a 1.8 mm N/N to spray GF's HP, and you will likely still have to add about 5 - 6% H2O to get the viscosity down to around 50 seconds #4 Ford...

    Woodland lists the required torque for every both type used. The only way I have to do that is manually with a torque wrench. Must have torqued well over 200 bolts/nuts today on the trailer. The...

    Good idea, John. I'll start a new thread with the rest of the build and initial start up. At this point the sawhead and carriage are as I last left off since it was raining yesterday. I spent the...

    VFD's are a good choice up to 3 HP motors. Above that, though, they go up in price dramatically, at least from what I saw when I was looking for one that could handle 5 HP. So we ended up using a...

    Congrats; that's a huge step up. Delivery sure took long enough - I would have worn the carpet out in impatience.

    How large are the logs you want to mill? I just (two days ago) bought a Woodlander HM-130. I've been milling with a chainsaw mill for over 10 years and decided to stop at 30" even though I could...

    What tractor? No, no tractor, nor any other easy means of moving logs. This is what I use. It will pick up a log up to about 30" diameter, one at a time of course, and will go behind my car or an...

    I normally wipe it on with a folded paper shop towel. Most cloth materials have too much fuzz in them, which always ends up in the finish. Cheesecloth? I agree with the comment that it's too...

    Well, at least you have a tractor, Tony. Regardless though, you are right, milling is the easy part, and it should be even easier once I get the bandsaw mill up and running. Getting the logs to and...
